Party Of One
Enter The Amazing Knightwolf
I’ve loved superheroes ever since I was a kid. Like most fans of superheroes I’d always imagined the heroes I’ create. I loved the idea of someone with powers. That someone could be both special and different. I was also attracted to the isolation, fear and frustrations certain heroes face. Now, while I’ve loved many different superheroes, there always seems to be one that I return to again and again as what seemed to me to be very nearly the perfect superhero: Spider-Man. There was just something about his struggles that seemed very real. The constant efforts followed by disappointment followed by getting up and trying again. This was amazing stuff. As awesome as it might be to move worlds around, to be six foot seven, and idolized by everyone; this wasn’t very relate-able to me as a kid growing up. It still isn’t as an adult.
When I set about writing a short story I took several different works from film and television and books and comics. The hero I created was the hero I wanted to see in comics. It was the hero I thought I’d probably (strive) to be if I were to somehow gain fantastic abilities.
Knight Stalker came out. (The title was changed to Knightwolf pretty early on.) Morgan Stone (Knightwolf) was the hero whose life I wanted to explore. His life as a superhero and I wanted to stay as close to “what if” as I could. What if a person in the real world suddenly found themselves with super powers.
Ten hundred zillion years later I’ll finally be putting out a graphic novel bringing together my original superhero comic book. This Spring/Summer Knightwolf will appear this spring alongside other graphic novel I’ll be publishing; Alteredego, Chaos Grimm, the Lost Book and I (heart) Robots.
